Term Description

This term was created for, but is not limited in use to, Sequenom Laboratories' MaterniT21 PLUS trisomy 18 test, which analyzes circulating cell-free DNA extracted from maternal plasma for chromosome 18 aneuploidy using whole genome sequencing. MaterniT21 PLUS is indicated for use in pregnant women with increased risk for fetal chromosomal aneuploidy.

LP150045-5   Sequencing
Sequencing is a method used to determine the sequence of individual genes, larger genetic regions (i.e. clusters of genes or operons), full chromosomes or entire genomes. Historically, most sequencing has been performed using the chain termination method developed by Frederick Sanger in 1977. PMID: 271968 Sequencing technologies have improved dramatically, making them cheaper, faster, and more accurate. Next-generation sequencing (NGS), also known as high-throughput sequencing, deep sequencing, and second-generation sequencing, is a type of technology that uses parallel sequencing of multiple small fragments of DNA to determine sequence. This "high-throughput" technology has increased the speed and amount of DNA sequenced at a significantly reduced cost. PMID: 18576944 Several NGS platforms (ie, sequencing instruments and associated reagents) have been developed. Third-generation sequencing is another methodology currently under development that uses parallel sequencing similar to NGS. In contrast to NGS, third-generation sequencing uses single DNA molecules rather than amplified DNA as a template. PMID: 20858600 Source: Regenstrief LOINC

LP187146-8   Fetal chromosome 18 trisomy
Trisomy 18 risk refers to the fetus's risk of having trisomy 18. The risk can be estimated based on maternal age and prenatal genetic testing of fetal DNA.Trisomy 18, also called Edwards syndrome, is caused by the presence of three copies of chromosome 18 in each cell rather than two. Edwards syndrome is associated with intrauterine growth retardation and fetal demise, and liveborn infants with Edwards syndrome typically have low birth weight, congenital heart disease, and characteristic physical features. Less than 10% of liveborn infants with Edwards syndrome live past their first year. The general population risk of Edwards syndrome is 1 out of 5,000 live births, and the risk for Edwards syndrome increases with increasing maternal age.

Change Reason
The PrThr property is used for LOINC terms whose results are reported using an ordered categorical scale, regardless of whether or not an internal threshold was used to make that determination. This change was approved by the Laboratory LOINC Committee in June 2016.; Added "Fetal" to Component to clarify that the result is about the fetus.
